Saw something earlier on twitter that Ralphie got spooked by the smoke in the tunnel or something and that's why she didn't run?
Combination from the smoke, shadows, and the people is what I was told
I talked to one of the handlers last week at Mile High, I asked something about running her. He said there are a few variables like weather, field condition, and her temperament which could cause her not to run.
My daughter was upset not to see her run but she did run before the second half so that made it okay for her.
On the radio they said it was a timing issue...The team was ready to go and that info was not relayed to the handlers. Larry Zimmer said he remembered it happening once in the '70's where they opened the cage and Ralphie just decided not to run.
Worried me too,then a few minutes into the game someone had a heart attack in near the top of my section,they had to put him on a stretcher and carry him down the stairs to an ambulance. I thought we were definitely ****ed. Thoughts and prayers to that fan.
Coach said that the smoke spooked her, and the players ran out before they calmed her down.
PRich said he jumped the gun. The runners decided not to run Ralphie since the team was out on the field. Ralphie got spooked at an NU game in 2003 (I think). It was a bad omen.
Superstition is superstition...
...it ain't the way.
It was weird. As soon as the team ran out I knew "he" wouldn't run. I actually felt bad for the UCA fans, :lol: Seeing Ralphie is a big high light for the other team's fans.
They saw her in the second half, and seemed pretty excited about it.
